Looking back at last Thanksgiving we are even more thankful & grateful for our blessings this year. Emma is a healthy, happy 2 yr old with no heart problems to speak of, she is growing & thriving just as she should. Her left hand looks amazing & she is using it as if nothing was ever done. She still doesn't eat as much as she should but we have gotten used to that part & just roll with it. Hopefully over time her appetite will increase, especially once she is off Pediasure.
For those who may not be aware, Chris has the shingles. I must say he is quite miserable. There is very little chance that he can give chicken pocks to me or Emma but he is still keeping his distance, drs orders. Poor Emma just doesn't understand, but she know Daddy is sick. We are hoping he is about 1/2 way thru even though it wasn't diagnosed until Thanksgiving Eve, he felt bad since the beginning of last week. The drs he has seen have told him it should only last a few weeks, we are hoping only 2. Then to top it all off, today we think he is having reactions to all the meds they gave him. He called the nurse but nobody returned his call, hopefully he will hear something in the morning.
Emma & I headed to the beach (as planned minus Chris) with my Mom, sisters & neices on Friday & had a great time. The car trip to/fro was much better than past trips since I borrowed a tv/vcr for Emma to watch videos. She hardly made a peep. We spent all day Saturday shopping at the outlets & came back home Sunday evening. It was a short trip but we all throughly enjoyed it. The ride home was a little shaky since the vcr decided to eat one of the tapes & would not eject so the last hour or so Emma wasn't too happy but is eager to go back anyway. She is already asking to go back to "Nana's beach house".
Then on the adoption front, we have had several bites on our online profile (which we are thrilled about), but nothing has come from them so far. We know God is in control & things happen in His time, not ours. We can't wait for the day the phone rings & its Lifetime calling to say we have a birthmother for you or better yet a baby. God is good & blesses us everyday.
